Selectboard Agendas and Meeting Minutes

The Selectboard is at the center of town government in Vermont.  Sharon’s three-member Selectboard is elected by the voters at Town Meeting for staggered terms of three years. Selectboard members are Kevin Blakeman-Chair, Mary Gavin-Vice-Chair, and Luke Pettengill-Clerk.

The Selectboard is responsible for the general supervision of town affairs. It has a number of functions, including: legislative (enacts local ordinances, regulations and policies), and administrative (prepares the budget, oversees all town expenditures, supervises town employees and controls town buildings and property). It also does work that is quasi-judicial–for example, it determines private rights when the town is laying out and reclassifying town highways.

Selectboard members want to hear from you. The sooner they hear from you about a problem, or the earlier in a decision-making process you offer your comments, the sooner a solution can be found. Selectboard members welcome your questions or concerns and encourage you to contact them by phone, e-mail, or in person.

Citizens are always welcome to attend Selectboard meetings and join in the discussion. The agenda is posted in advance of all meetings on this website and at the Town Hall, the Sharon Trading Post, Midway Station and the Sharon Post Office, or you can request one from the Selectboard Assistant by email (selectboard@sharonvt.net) or telephone: (802) 763-8268 ext 4.

Selectboard meetings are generally held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month at 6:30pm at the Sharon Municipal Office, 69 Route 132. The public is always welcome, and a public comment period is included at the beginning of every meeting. To get a particular issue on the agenda, please contact the Selectboard Administrative Assistant at (802) 763-8268 ext 4 or selectboard@sharonvt.net
